Smoked Shotgun Shells


I took some manicotti shells and filled them with hamburger, cheese and jalapeños then wrapped them in bacon and topped them with Traeger Beef rub and threw them on the smoker.

I used Signature Traeger pellets and set my smoker to 350 until these smoked shotgun shells reached an internal temperature of about 160 degrees.
